NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING
The time has come!
As we approach the National Day of Mourning – 28th May 2022, we must continue to amplify our voices about the increasing spate of mass atrocities across the country; especially as we approach a crucial decision-making period for Nigeria.
The civil society community under the auspices of Nigeria Mourns is very concerned about the prevailing insecurity and seeming lack of value for human life in Nigeria. Over the past year alone, more than 6,000 Nigerian lives were lost to mass atrocities with over 5,000 recorded cases of abductions from January to December 2021. In the first quarter of 2022 alone, we have had a major surge in mass atrocities, with the terrorist-bandits in Zamfara state opening the new year on a bloody note, the terrorist attack on the Abuja-Kaduna bound train, and an increasing spate of abductions.
The danger is even more pronounced as we enter the thick of the electioneering season, where political actors, regional and vested interests and internal/external instigators will no doubt take actions to stir up the polity and incentivize violent actors to commit violent crimes.
To address these issues, Global Rights is hosting a press briefing on the theme of this year’s National Day of Mourning: “Secure Nigeria”, where we will also be launching our Mass Atrocities Documentary titled: “Gangs of Naija”.
DATE: Friday, 27th May 2022
VENUE: Novare Hall, Wuse Zone 5
